Winter is coming. Things to do in St Petersburg in fall and winter.
First time in Saint Petersburg? If it's fall or winter when getting around and not freezing/getting wet seem rather incompatible, then don’t worry - warm company and hot tea always help! Our guides are well prepared for the famous Russian winter and a less famous Russian fall and know many ways to explore the city without spending much time in puddles or turning into an icicle.
1. Warm and classy
Discover the downtown with Daniel K. or Evelina P. Your route will include major city must-see locales, brief foot-warming sojourns, informal hidden yards, city legends, and some hot drink! This is one of the best options to have fun, learn about Saint Petersburg and feel the true city spirit!
2. Warm and underground
Don’t feel like walking outside but still looking for a unique experience? Then stay inside! The subway, that is. SPb has one of the most beautiful and opulent metro systems in the world. Honestly, some stations look better than certain (not to be named) European palaces. Our guides Vladimir I. or Evgeniya U. will take around and tell you about the life and values of the society that created it. You’ll get to know Russian culture through an extraordinary dimension of the hidden metro palaces.

3. Just hot
The best and most traditional way to warm up in the cold Russian weather is to have a drink. And if particularly cold out, several. The best way to accomplish this is to go on a pub crawl.
